Hey Everyone....sorry I haven't been around for a while....it's been a rough start to the new year.....I lost my little girl dog (Tasia) a few days ago. She was very old, and wasn't able to do anything for herself anymore. It was a very hard decision to make, but I know it was the right thing to do. The house is so quiet now...and the other dogs are sad too. I just keep giving them attention and letting them know that they are loved.

The day after...I came into work to find out that my boss's husband died in his sleep that same night....what a shock!!!! I just saw him at our Christmas party a few weeks ago...he sat next to me at our table, and nothing was wrong. We don't know all the details yet...it's so sad. Everyone at work it real quiet....it's hard to deal with right now.

Sorry, don't mean to be a downer...just wanted to explain where my head is right now. I have to start taking down the christmas stuff tonight and get the house back in order...that should keep me busy for the weekend.

We are closing in on the 11 month mark this weekend

Prayers are with your boss.

And with you. It is a hard decision to have to make.

That is NOT a good way to start a new year. So sorry to hear about Tasia. We lost our Sammi girl a couple of months ago. I think our other dog still misses her. We do.

That is so sad about your boss's husband. I'm sure it's putting a big strain on work these days.

Guess we'll all just have to keep thinking about the Fantasy and next December!

Hello Everyone !!! I'm better now.....thanks for caring. Today is the day of our boss's dh service....everyone is dressed in black...I'm not wild about going, but I want to be there in support of her....I can't imaging what she is going through.

On a happier note....we are under the 11 month mark!!!!! Our ship was to be floated out of dry dock yesterday getting ready for sea trials.....I'm so excited about this ship !!!

One note for this cruise (for me)....MUST.TAKE.MORE.PICTURES

Hello all...I hope everyone is doing well. It's been a while since I have posted so I'm just checking in!

After seeing videos of the float out I'm getting really excited!

This will be our first Disney cruise so I'm looking forward to seeing if the "Disney Happy Glow" I get when visiting the parks transfers over to the cruise ship.

What are you looking forward to the most?

Since this cruise will be our 7th DCL cruise (and 2nd on the Fantasy by the time we sail), I can say I am most looking forward to seeing the Christmas decorations on the ship & Castaway Cay. I am also looking forward to a December vacation

The most...hmmmm...that's a tough one...I'm excited about meeting DISers I haven't met before, seeing DISers again that I have met...looking forward to seeing the podcast team again....it's a new ship, can't wait to explore (and I will do more of that this time)...going to places I haven't been to before, going back to Castaway Cay....the food...the entertainment.....I might as well sum this up....EVERYTHING

First - Happy New Year!

I am really looking forward to seeing the new ship and visiting the ports. My first western Caribbean cruise was in 2005, so I will enjoy returning to 3 of the ports. I made no plans in Cozumel on my first cruise, and that's what I did...nothing! This time I want to do the excursion to the Tulum ruins. I loved my private tour to the Chacchoben Ruins in Costa Maya and would love to do that again. However, due to our short port time, I may book the ship's tour. I did a stingray and island tour in Grand Cayman, and may just do an island tour this time. I imagine I'll do my usual thing at Castaway Cay: stroll along the beach for awhile, eat lunch, then go back to the ship to see a movie.

Almost forgot...Mickey Bars from room service! And...meeting DISers will be fun, too!

I am looking forward to having a vacation. That will be our only vacation this year. I am looking forward to exploring the new ship, new places for us to visit and new people to meet!

Been to the ports before. Have to do the mandatory shopping for knick knacks.

Otherwise, I'm looking forward to relaxing, having someone else do the cooking and cleaning

- and the Podcast stuff. I wonder what they have planned for us this time.

I'm looking forward to all the ports and meeting Casey on Castaway Cay.

We have not done this cruise before and are just starting to look at excursions.
We have 2 adult history buffs, and two fair skinned (sunburns easily even with sunblock and floppy hats) people.

Has anyone done the underground river tour that looks like spelunking? I am thinking we won't get burnt on that one.

So my question- are there any excursions that did have sun, but also had shade available in case needed?
